"Interesting that Derek Carr's contract desires are becoming public," Underhill tweeted. "Must mean the money isn't there yet. $35 million doesn't feel like a lot, but maybe his market ends up being closer to $25-30 million.

Carr is being pursued by a slew of teams, according to ESPN source Jeremy Fowler
